Osho, a contemporary mystic has spoken on virtually every aspect of human consciousness. In these talks, the human mind is put under the microscope as never before, analyzed down to the smallest wrinkle.
In this talk Osho responds to the following question:
Recently you spoke about the will to power. You explained the importance of having this will, this longing, to become a master over one’s self. You also often declare that every desire is the basic reason for men’s frustration. Can you please explain the difference between will and desire?
“…desire is always for things. More money, more prestige, more respectability, more knowledge, more virtue, a better place in the afterlife — these are all desires.”
